What happens in the Arctic affects us all.

Kiribati, a small island nation in the South Pacific, is preparing to be wiped off the map. As the melting Arctic continues to warm at twice the rate of the rest of the planet, Kiribiti may become inundated by 2050.

It’s a stark reminder we need to act NOW to tackle climate change. Start by joining the movement to #SaveTheArctic

Record temps in Australia last year were almost certainly caused by man made climate change, 5 separate studies have found. Researchers at ANU, University of Melbourne & UNSW have concluded it’s “virtually impossible” that the heat waves that hit Aus in 2013 would have occurred were it not for carbon emissions caused by human activity. #climatechange #heatwave #australia #greenpeace #sun #science #climate #coal via Instagram http://ift.tt/1nIBFhm

Together we’ve sent a clear message to the Big 4 banks:
Don’t fund Reef destruction.

Here’s your mobile billboard in action, it has been visiting dozens of busy ANZ, CBA, NAB & Westpac branches across Sydney & Brisbane, getting in front of plenty of branch managers & customers. Share today to spread our message further!

Breaking: Whitehaven Coal Shutdown

In one of Australia’s most ambitious protests against export coal, over 150 people have come out in force today across six locations to protest Whitehaven Coal’s new Maules Creek coal mine.

Every open cut mine owned by Whitehaven Coal in the Gunnedah basin has been shut down by protesters. 

They are calling on the NSW government to put an immediate stop to work at the mine and audit the approval process that allowed this controversial project to proceed.

This beautiful artwork for the Reef is a collaboration between us & Italian artist duo Carnovsky designed to raise awareness about the beauty and biodiversity we stand to lose if the Great Barrier Reef becomes a major coal port.

While the fossil fuel industry are celebrating the climate policy wreckage the Abbott government has left in its path this year, what do Australians really think about coal?
